"God willing, there are none here," Bashir said. "If there were infidels here, just beat them up. Do not tolerate them."

Bashir likened non-Muslims to crawling animals. "Worms, snakes, maggots - those are animals that crawl. Take a look at Bali ... those infidel tourists. They are naked."
Bashir advised his followers that dying as martyrs (i.e. killing people) was the path to divine forgiveness:
The young must be first at the front line - don't hide at the back. You must be at the front, die as martyrs and all your sins will be forgiven. This is how to achieve forgiveness.
